Ingredients

STIR-FRY

1 5- to 6-lb spaghetti squash

¼ cup avocado oil, divided

1 yellow onion, peeled and diced

3 cups sliced carrots

3 cups sliced white mushrooms

1¼ lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips

8 cups chopped bok choy

3 green onions, sliced

¼ cup sesame seeds, divided hot sauce, optional

SAUCE

½ cup coconut aminos

¼ cup sesame oil

2 cloves garlic

1 tbsp arrowroot starch 1½ tsp peeled and minced fresh ginger

¼ tsp red pepper flakes

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut squash in half and scoop out and discard seeds. Brush cut sides of squash with 2 tbsp avocado oil and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet, cut sides down. Bake for 35 minutes or until flesh is soft when poked with a fork. Remove squash from rind by scraping with a fork to make strands that resemble spaghetti; set aside in a bowl.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet on medium-low, heat remaining 2 tbsp avocado oil. Add yellow onion and cook until translucent, 5 minutes. Add carrots and mushrooms and cook 5 minutes more. Add chicken and cook until chicken is no longer pink inside, about 10 minutes more.
  3. Make sauce, in a blender, place sauce ingredients and pulse until blended. Add sauce to skillet along with bok choy. Sauté until bok choy wilts, about 5 minutes.
  4. Divide spaghetti squash among bowls. Divide veggie-chicken mixture among bowls and top each with green onions and sesame seeds. Serve with hot sauce, if desired.

NOTE: If following our Meal Plan, store spaghetti squash and veggie- chicken mixture separately in refrigerator and reheat when called for, then top with garnishes.
